With the ongoing innovation of the top paver companies in the industry, there is a selection of different style pavers like never before. They come in different thicknesses, sizes, and shapes, all with the intended purpose of creating a pathway or patio, even a driveway application. It is good to combine different colors/styles within one project to delineate borders and to give your paver project a unique look. If you like the natural stone look, using natural flagstone makes a great choice for a patio or path, in random shapes or varying square and rectangle shapes.
Types of Pavers
There are two different types of pavers. Ones that are suitable for immediate drainage where they are installed. These are called permeable. Then there are the more traditional pavers which need to be installed to direct water away from an area such as your home. We will explain the options when we come out to quote your project.
There are many different designs for pavers.
Let us suggest a mix and match of different styles and colors to provide you with your own classy, personal touch that will accent your home style, while achieving the functionality you need.
Natural Stone Patios and Walkways
Using natural flagstone makes a great choice for a patio or path.
If you have an existing concrete pad, patio, or even your front porch, that is not cracked or damaged, a great choice is to overlay this with a paver or natural stone. There is a proper technique that is vital to this being a successful transition. We will share with you the process that we use to ensure that proper adhesion, water management and finished look is all achieved. This is a more economical solution yet equally stunning, when the circumstances allow it.
Southeastern Pa. has one of the most brutal freeze thaw cycles in the United States! This makes paver installation a much better choice over concrete. Unless concrete is done perfectly correct which is very costly, it will fail and crack, leaving you with major issues. Pavers when installed professionally and by qualified contractors will withstand the elements and will not shift in the constant freeze/thaw of the Winter.

We are now the talk of the town thanks to the incredible job you and your guys did in designing and installing our new walkway outside our home in Boyertown.
